Make Your Voice Heard on Medicare Cuts!

We regularly send out Action Alert requests asking you to contact Congress to make sure they hear how their actions impact your organization and the residents and clients you serve. This week, we’re asking you to urge Congress to pass H.R. 1868, a bill that will prevent cuts to Medicare due to congressional mandates. Make your voice heard by reaching out to your members of Congress today.

How Members Influenced LeadingAge’s 2021 Policy Priorities

LeadingAge’s policy priorities guide LeadingAge advocacy on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, and in state capitals around the nation. We encourage you to read the 2021 policy priorities that matter most to you and use them as a resource when advocating to legislators.
